The Transactor Magazine

The Transactor magazine started as a 2-page newsletter dated April 30, 1978 and was published throughout the 1980's. One of the noted C64 hardware-hacking magazines, it was originally published by Commodore Canada. It was purchased from BMB Compuscience, the parent company, by the entire editorial team in April 1987 and sold to Antony Jacobsen & Ben Lewis, Croftward Limited (the publisher of Commodore Computing International among others) in November 1988. Croftward continued publishing both Transactor magazines until late 1989. The last issue of Transactor, January 1990, was fully prepared but never made it off the press.

Description of these issues were added by Jonno Downes.
